For this roundtable discussion panel, participants will be asked to prepare a very brief, five-minute presentation of their work as it pertains to digital feminisms, social justice activism, social justice pedagogy, or community engagement. In addition to these topics, other topics may include digital teaching tools (websites, blogs, geo-mapping, podcasts, videos, web-archives, etc.), digital activism and critical media, experimental pedagogy, and collaborative, inter-university projects. Presentations may reflect on theoretical contexts for intersections between these topics, or they may demonstrate actual hands-on projects that exemplify those intersections for use in teaching and research. Ideally, the panelists will come from a variety of backgrounds, disciplines, and institutions so as to attract and engage a diverse audience and demonstrate a multitude of possible ways to engage students, faculty members, campus communities, and professional organizations. After the brief introductions, we will proceed with a group discussion among panelists and audience members on transnational and digital feminisms. The goal of this roundtable session is to inspire and encourage collaborative projects on translational feminisms, engaged pedagogy, and digital innovation. 

Individual paper presentations will be between 15 and 20 minutes long. Please submit proposals via the online system by June 26, 2017. The PAMLA 2017 Conference will be held at the lovely Chaminade University of Honolulu (with the official conference hotel being the Ala Moana) from Friday, November 10 to Sunday, November 12.

Paper proposals must be made via our online system found here:
